Paris is Burning

cocktail Dec 2, 2017

Let us mix a Paris is Burning cocktail, created by the talented Leo Robitschek from Hotel Nomad in NYC. In the little black cocktail book from Nomad several of Leo's creations are featured, but today the Paris is Burning seems most tempting to make as it captures everything we appreciate from a true craft cocktail.

First of all, we think that pale yellow colour is so beautiful. It immediately makes the cocktail look delicious without having tasted it. But as soon as you do taste it you are treated with this intriguing flavour combination of the smoky mezcal, the refreshing elderflower liqueur and the sweet pineapple. The Angostura dash used as garnish very elegantly finishes the drink.
